I got a leaf blower which I bought from Japan and intend to use it in Thailand (220V => 100V). I found a step-down converter which can not be used on electronic stuffs. (the blower runs on motor only so I suppose it would be fine)
The blower specs are as follows
Motor type : some kind of commutator motor Voltage : single-phase 100 V Current : 12 A Power : 1,100 W
the tranformer specs are
220-240VAC to 100VAC, 2.5 A Max., 50/60Hz,26-1875W
Here, I found the max current very strange.
220V±10% to 110V±10%, 10A Max. 50/60Hz, 2000W max
The problem is the current my blower need is 12A which is more than the max current specified by both devices.
- Should there be any problem?
- After all shouldn't the max current be calculated by max wattage divied by voltage?
- Would it be okay to use any of these transformer?
